English National Ballet has launched an international search for a new Artistic Director to succeed Tamara Rojo CBE who, as previously announced, steps down towards the end of this year.
Sir Roger Carr, Chair of ENB, said, “we are seeking someone who can bring a clear artistic vision for English National Ballet, to build on Tamara Rojo’s inspiring legacy and keep us at the forefront of leading ballet companies into the future.”
A sub-committee of ENB’s Board of Trustees has been established to undertake the search process, led by Sue Butcher, Vice Chair, alongside Caroline Thomson, Sue Sloan and Kamara Gray, supported by an Artistic Advisory Panel, comprising Baroness Deborah Bull (Vice President, Communities & National Engagement and Senior Advisory Fellow for Culture at King’s College London), Cate Canniffe (Director of Dance at Arts Council England) Sir Nicholas Hytner (Artistic Director of the Bridge Theatre) and Sir Alistair Spalding (Artistic Director & Chief Executive of Sadler’s Wells).
International recruitment consultants, Odgers Berndtson, have been appointed to assist with the search.
